Posted on: July 24th, 2013 by Lorna McMahon

Just a little something I whipped up on a whim last night….  A 9″ (finished size) spool block. I have been working on my current quilt for quite some time now.  And am almost finished.  But I needed a little distraction.  So, I sat down with a pad of grid paper and drew up this […]

Today after church, I was approached by a member of my congregation who is also a quilter.  She noticed my Sew Fresh Quilts page on facebook, was wondering if I would be interested in doing some volunteer quilting for Victoria’s Quilts.  Of course I told her I would love to, and since she had brought […]

It has now been a month since I began this blog.  And what a fast, fabric-filled month it has been.  I am sew happy.  I really enjoy writing this blog, meeting new people and learning more about communicating on the internet, learning more about quilting, and now being able to do all this without having […]

Enchantment progress

Posted on: December 31st, 2012 by Lorna McMahon

I made it through Friday’s shopping trip with the girls unscathed, but rather bored.  Five hours in the mall was at least four hours too long for me.  But I did get some more graph paper and made good use of my time.  I sat in the food court and drew up some quilty ideas. […]

Posted on: December 24th, 2012 by Lorna McMahon

Here is my […]
